Smart but sporty, functional yet simple, the Datejust is one of the longest produced models in the Rolex catalogue. Initially launched in 1945, this watch enjoys over seven decades of successful aesthetic and functional evolution. The last step in its continuous upgrade was the augmentation of the case which translates into a more modern dress watch, thus making it more appealing to the contemporary man who values trends and style. The here offered reference 81 209 has the case measuring 33 mm. The case has been manufactured in white gold and preserved in almost untouched conditions. While adding weight and importance to the watch, this choice of materials grants it an extremely elegant look and sportiness with the solid white-gold bracelet. The dial is dark blue which shines in the sun making lines of different color tones, with applied big wide Roman hour markers and the Rolex crown logo located at 12 o’clock, enhancing legibility in any lighting conditions. This is a very popular option on the market due to its sporty vibe and smart design.
